Went to Chelsea on Saturday for my first Fall art viewing adventure of 2011. Ended up spending an hour or so at the Cristin Tierney Gallery watching White on White: Algorithmic Noir, a video piece by Eve Sussman and Rufus Corporation.

You should go check out the film on the big screen before October 22nd. (But if you cannot make it to Chelsea you can also view the video on the triple canopy website here, scroll over to the right for the episodes.)

From the Winkleman Gallery website:
Founded on a premise of 60’s-era-evil-think-tank-meets-traveling circus, the group of collaborators known as Rufus Corporation have embarked on an expedition-cum-artwork that morphs into a cinema verité thriller as it moves from Moscow to the Caspian. They encounter time capsules and testaments to both past and present failed utopias. Their search, as they log the banalities of daily life, is for places, devices and people that are prescient as premonitions for the future.
